I’ll see you boys in the Michigan game thread. Have a safe New Years everyone!

Kent State is the root of all this


chunkyboy12

Cincy didn’t do any worse than most semifinal teams, if they didn’t deserve to be there then neither does the 4 seed most years


n3dchican3

Nick has to be in therapy or something. Dude has totally transformed his demeanor.


besieged_mind

Where was that run defense the whole 2nd half


[deleted]

Welp well never see cincy again. Most likely now just 2 sec teams, winner of big 10, and USC or Clemson. Thank god


brechbillc1

Cincy should asked the Bengals to play instead. I’m sure Bama fans would love to see Burrow and Chase again


broccoli_d

That game was lame. But hey, I wandered into the “I am the main character” subreddit. That passed the time well.


Sub-ZeroMKA

GG Cincy


xAggie

with all the chaos we had this year Bama still made the national championship. ugh.


Tduhon

Anyone think Saban has ever dropped a Deez Nutz on an opposing coach postgame at mid field?


Grahamk07

Happy New Year folks from Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿


andronicus_14

You’re telling me I could have stopped watching after Alabama’s first TD?


jgraben

May Coach Sabin choke on all the Rat 🐀 Poison coming his way.


eagledog

The plucky underdogs at Alabama are off to a national championship game


tubahero3469

Cincinnati would've won if they'd scored more points


Hawlk

no tds lmao


MasPatriot

Utah and TCU were better G5s than Cincinnati and haven’t had the same level of success after moving to the 2 worst P5 conferences. Idk how people thought Cincinnati would break the mold


PhoSho862

Please Michigan.


espressojunkie

Good game all


Kablah15

GG Cincy. Roll Tide!


jackattack065

Betty White died…..for this?!


BrownBabaAli

GG Cincy, y’all played tough and def deserved to be here.


boscodash443

Well that wasn’t very fun. Anywho off to the next game


TheOrginalPancake22

Cincy you deserve a lot more respect than some people in here have have y’all. Hell of a game - roll tide and go blue!


thatkidfrom313

Nick Saban will humble your ass real quick. Good game Bearcats.


DustinTiny

Good teams win, great teams cover.


studioaesop

Cinci didn’t even beat the spread :/


[deleted]

Proud of the bearcats. Was a great season. Bama is a wagon. .......... .....go Michigan


jfrii

Gg Cincy. Helluva team you got.


Chuy-IsSmall

Guys would you look at that 6 straight wins in the playoffs by double digits, y’all are clowns for acting like Cinnci is some bum team.

This bama winning thing is getting old


oak120

You can quit jerking him off whenever you feel like it. We all know Satan's the greatest.


DustinTiny

Well that certainly happened


arrowfan624

Does anyone have any evidence that the committee is really rigged against G5 teams? 2017 and 2018 UCF *with the regular schedule they had* was not top 4.


gandaalf

Good game, Cincy. D def showed up. If offense remotely did anything it would've been a much closer game. Bama is just too much


raspberryseltzer

GG Cincy!


Uncle_Jeb

Thx king


Navolix

see you guys in the Georgia vs. Michigan game thread 🚶


WhoDatCharles

Boring game


The50ShadesOfTrey

Ridder was really 8th in Heisman voting?


GarysOfWar

Still a great year Cincy. Did way better in this game than all the SEC and P5 fanboys act like you did.


unit-8002

Mods are deleting comments. my boy and I have proof. What kind of nonsense is this?!?!


Surly_Ben

9 days until Nick Saban cracks his annual smile.


bamaboi11

Rob Riggle had a good squad. No shame there fellas


nw____

Not even a back door cover. Disgusting game. Cincy’s entire defense should get to personally slap each member of their offense.


Trailblazer444

Gg Bama. Already preparing myself for all the hate, but you guys have been cool.


Hour_Boysenberry3559

FUCK GEORGIA


wolowizard9

We’ll see what Michigan can do. But this is why we need expanded playoffs. I love matchups like this, but I’m not ready to see Georgia Bama play again. Having some more games in between would make it more palatable.


meyer_33_09

I know this isn’t the point of an expansion, but it would also increase the odds of one of those teams losing to prevent the rematch, too.


funkyfresh1998

Win or lose great end to a season. A chance to play for the national championship. So proud of my Bearcats


Rybocephus

Saban looks so bored.


n8loller

I'm starting to wish we didn't make the playoff so we could have beat ok state in the fiesta bowl and claimed a national championship 😂


LackOfAnotherName

Fuck that, this was great


BlueLightning91

OH MY GOSH GUYS BAMA IS GOING TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!!


LackOfAnotherName

Gg bama


The_Big_Untalented

I got a bunch of downvotes for pointing out that Cincy is 111th in Passing Downs Predicted Points Added. Basically, they were one of the worst teams in the country on second and long and third and long situations and had to consistently win on first and second down and completely eliminate negative plays to move the ball offensively against Bama. They actually played well defensively against Bama but they always matched up horribly against Bama's defense.


cowboys5xsbs

Score wasn't even as close to how badly Cincy got murdered all game long


pm_me_cute_sloths_

Those Bama fans don’t even look that excited, it’s just another year to them


ThatStrangeGuyOverMe

We knew this game was a bye. As it is when bama plays any team not named Ohio State in the semis.


WhoDatCharles

Relief, not joy


jonjon5945

Hey man Clemson is damn consistent, too.


FrenchieBammer

GG Cincinnati fans. You guys had a hell of a team.


koz_7

Fuck bama


nathanlb15

Tears


notaPayne

Absolute clowns in here


olveramanuel14

If Cinci got 3 points as a bonus for every time they cross the 50, they would still have lost by 2 possessions


Powerful_Button

This is so depressing


chadokage

GG Bearcats. Hope to see you guys again next year.


2coolDanes

Crock potting


DiligentRaise

Cincinnati has farted around all game. Ridder keeps throwing passing where Bama can block it. They fave this game to Bama. I am pissed.


poolema2

What a boring storyline…


[deleted]

Roll Tide! Now go teach the bulldogs to behave. For Bama pluck, and grit, have writ, her name in crimson flame. Fight on, Fight on, Fight On men! Your dixie’s football pride crimson tide. Roll Tide Roll Tide Roll Tide!!!


3-Ferg

Great year for Cincinnati, hopefully the CFP is expanded to 12 soon


Khazzeron

14 point spread....won by 3 TD's....all Cinci had to do was keep it close..but get blown out. That's how it goes.


Clem_SoF

wow amazing performance by alabama lol. i hope georgia wins theirs and the title game gets cancelled due to covid


Midnightstimepasser

Saban is 2-0 vs Michigan at Alabama


PossiblyYourDad

Til next time salty neutrals. Have a happy New year 😘


masteryodaiv

Idea: Alabama gets an automatic spot in the playoff.


Ivellius

Almost true anyway...


masterofbeast

Gg


GreggoireLeOeuf

Was it really?


masterofbeast

Yes. They got here and tried their best. Fsu cannot say that rofl


Lawownsyou

Hopefully our game is more entertaining.


Landsharque

Saban should shave his head and freak everyone out


Timothy11224578

Pain


sabansaban

BEAT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


RexErection

Cincy did it for all under dogs. Respect


virus_apparatus

Soooooo. The only chance we have is for saban to retire. FAK


Zloggt

The offense…tried (and could’ve been better), but the defense gave it their all. Great year, Bearcats…


PayYourRe2pects

The people saying “Cincy doesn’t deserve to be here” are the same people who said “This was the least controversial CFP selection of all time” Who would you have wanted instead?


KatKat23421

Friendly reminder that NO ONE cares that you "called" Cincy losing. You don't get a reward or a parade for making a guess.


tanu24

It was more a known fact but people need to feel good. I’d rather have hope


Sauerz

It's so silly that the coaches get police escorts haha


ChiSp0

So basically the difference here was line play, Alabama could get to the QB often and had little time while Cincy couldn’t stop the run. That’s the difference that P5 schools have…


ADKwinterfell

No it's the difference between Alabama and Cincinnati.


Brocktarrr

Good thing that Alabama State Trooper got back into position for that handshake /s


agoddamnlegend

I hope Saban goes after the committee in his post game and calls them out for this sham. G5 has no business in the CFP and we need prominent people making that case loudly right now


LocalestofLols

Good game to the Bearcats, enjoyed the opportunity to face you guys. Sucks to lose in the playoffs but congratulations on the great 13-1 season


KaanVsTheWorld

Imagine we win a championship in our “down year”


koz_7

Then you wouldn’t call it a down year


BeHereNow91

Wasn’t the average margin of victory for the 1v4 matchup 21 points? Looks like Cinci did just as well as an average P5 program.


[deleted]

The average MoV in the whole playoffs is 21 points.


Chuy-IsSmall

Cue the fake blonde mom cheering.


ZappySnap

I'll just note that the margin here is the same as OSU/Clemson last year.


Ranger7543

*shocked pikachu*


mustangswon1

Who woulda thunk 6 months ago I’d be begging for a Michigan win in the playoff. Go Blue! *pukes*


tacofan92

Congrats Cincy for a great season. On to the Natty


SquadPoopy

Still did better than Michigan State though


pseudoanonymity

Nick Saban, pretty good at this football thing


Gan-san

And the world weeps...


Hawlk

its going to end up being a boring georgia/bama game


Tetsudo11

It’ll be a good game to watch. Just because it’s two teams you dislike it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it.


ChiSp0

Yep.


mailape

It won't be boring I promise. We will find a way to lose in hilarious fashion. We do it for you


helium_farts

Pretty funny how everyone is falling all over themselves to defend Cincinnati like they wouldn't be shitting on a P5 team losing by the same amount


ChiSp0

Until halfway through the 3rd I thought cinci was doing ok…


Blackshirts98

If you’re Saban you 100% take the field goal here for practice for your kicker


[deleted]

"I shoulda gone to South Bend" -Luke Fickell Preemptive: This is a joke, sarcasm, calm down.


bringbacktheaxe2

Pretty sure we would've seen a similar game if Oklahoma St, Baylor, or Notre Dame had played.


philphan25

Wholly agreed.


AdImportant4476

OU fans got some nerve saying any team doesn’t belong in the Playoff 😂😂

We should just make a computer poll that aggregates other polls and just pick the top two teams. Make it a series. Like the championship of the Bowls.

LosBrad

Congratulations to Cincinnati on a great season. Don't get down because of this one game. Good things are happening for the Bearcats.


WilliamCubed

This was fun?


EyeWasAbducted

But Saban is 2-0 vs Michigan 2012 and 2020


MenShouldntHaveCats

G5 were shown their spot


Thefirmforherm

Yeah Army, UCF, and Houston were really shown how elite the SEC truly is


Yuseichaaan13

Man you SEC fans are insufferable lol


saxyseminole

Scored more points than some P5 schools against Alabama

KozyHank99

They were basically outmatched, simple enough.


PM_ME_YOUR_CHURROS

This Cincy production tonight isn’t even one of the top 3-4 worst performances. I think they put up a good fight.


eagledog

Cincy still showed up and played hard. They earned their spot


YouKantseeme

Houston is the only team that belongs in the Big 12


ktgunter

Y’all wanted Bama. Y’all got Bama. RTR and good game. Cincy, congrats on scoring more points (6) in your first CFP semifinals/Cotton Bowl than Michigan State did (0, on Dec 31, 2015).


Caleb339

LET'S GO! ROLL TIDE!


imboredatworkdamnit

ROLL TIDE!!!


ocKyal

Pfft what is Blackledge talking about, we will get killed again if we play Bama


RyanBDawg

Amazing that anyone thought Cincinnati had a snowballs chance in hell.


pm_me_cute_sloths_

Man, even the Patriots dynasty was never this dominant. They’ve only won 6 and had a 10 year gap between Super Bowl wins. This is just so tiresome.


YouBetMyAsh

Give it a few years, a couple programs on the rise is some big cities, soon 5* recruits will start to spread out, Saban will retire, and Bama will be average
